Intelligence & Cyber Security
Are you protected against today’s highly sophisticated cyber threats? Has your business implemented proactive threat intelligence to truly understand the adversaries conducting attacks? Are you adequately protecting your mission critical assets and data? Scott Jarkoff has C-suite executive, mid-level, and hands-on offerings to benchmark your company’s processes and procedures, analyze your existing strategy, determine gaps, and demonstrate areas for improvement.
Properly defending an organization against the continuously growing, increasingly sophisticated cyber threats requires more than mere defense widgets. To adequately assess and understand the proper tools and techniques to deploy requires a thorough comprehension of all actors, ranging from nation state, cyber criminals, malicious actors, hacktivists, and more. Leveraging threat intelligence to comprehend the landscape is a key component in developing a proactive organizational cyber security strategy.
Attackers leverage the criminal underground, colloquially known as the deep and dark web, to peddle the fruits of their illicit activities. There are a myriad of forums and markets where harvested credentials, intellectual property, malware-as-a-service, and other illegitimate activities take place around the clock. Sophisticated criminal actors are publishing stolen corporate data on dedicated leak sites on the criminal underground. Brand and executive monitoring is a vital component in today’s comprehensive organizational security strategy.
Strong cyber security risk management requires not only a technological solution, but a strategy led by its CEO and senior leadership, fully integrated into day-to-day operations and embraced by the entire organization. Every company must be prepared to respond to the inevitable cyber incident, close the vulnerability, respond and restore normal operations, and ensure corporate and mission critical assets remain protected and intact. Scott Jarkoff has a tried-and-true methodology for assisting companies to meet this challenging goal
Scott Jarkoff was instrumental in deploying one of the first sets of firewalls on two mission critical, global DoD networks in the late nineties. Since then, he has remained a key player in DoD cyber security strategy, having played a vital role developing cross-government cyber security strategies in high-level U.S. Government and Government of Japan plenary sessions. Scott delivers and demonstrates the nitty-gritty details of DoD’s defense-grade cyber security strategy to help organizations understand defense-grade security postures.
